Each MAP bicycle is built from a custom blend of steel tubing from True Temper, Reynolds, Columbus or Kaisei based on a number of factors. Rider weight, intended use, frame size, and ride characteristics all play a role in tubing selection. The individual selection of tubes allows for the best possible ride and is part of what makes each frameset truly custom.
All MAP bicycles are built using lugged construction, are fillet-brazed, or utilize a combination of these methods. Lugs are chosen based on aesthetic preference and design constraints from Henry James, Pacenti Cycle Designs, and Richard Sachs lugs whenever possible. Limited numbers of vintage lug sets are available to compliment more classic bicycle builds.
